Tuesday's Tip from Our Junior Blogger: Flying Over Fences

Flying Over Fences:
Make sure your chickens don't fly over the fence because they might eat other people's flowers, food and might poop in their plants. Your neighbors may get really mad and call the police. 

Thanks, Little Chicken Tender!  This is good advice on how to keep your neighbors happy.  Luckily, our backyard has tall fencing so the chickens shouldn't be able to get out. However, we are having a problem with one of the Goldhen Girls flying over the chicken run's fence at Shady Pines.

Hello, my name is Edna, and I like to fly over the fence.

Our sweet little Easter Egger likes to get on the roof of the coop and launch herself over the fenced run. It only happens once a day and it's usually first thing in the morning.  I would like to avoid clipping her wing so it's time to call on Little Chicken Tender once more for some help.

Edna versus the Fenced Run:
To stop Edna from flying over the fence you could move the coop away from the fence.  If you can't move the coop put a roof over the top of the fence or make the fence taller.  Just keep building the fence higher and higher until she can't get out.

Thanks again for another great tip, Little Chicken Tender!  I have one smart cookie, don't I?  I guess the only way I am going to keep that crazy chicken from her daily jail break is raise the run's fence.  Looks like I have some work ahead of me.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading!  Stayed tuned for more Tuesday's Tip from our Junior Blogger.

All clear for lift off...
